Jim Dawson is a former editor of Hustler magazine and the author of a dozen books on everything from early rock ’n’ roll to a history of the “mother” of all dirty words. He has also written liner notes for more than one hundred blues albums. Dawson lives in Hollywood, California.
This impolite, aromatic, and incredibly erudite flatulence compendium will astound you with:
• The recent discovery of the world’s oldest joke, a proverb from the Old Babylonian period, that turned out to be—that’s right, folks—a fart joke.
• A new reading of Emily Dickinson’s poetry that “reveals” the true meaning behind “They Have a Little Odor.”
• A harrowing account of Apollo astronauts getting inner-space gas from hydrogen bubbles in their drinking water on their way to the moon.
• The other Tiger Woods scandal—this one involving a mysterious cheek-squeak recorded while Tiger sized up an approach shot at the 2009 Buick Open.
• A scientist who built the world’s biggest whoopee cushion and lived to tell about it . . .

. . . and many more wacky but true tales from the fart historian who brought you the best-sellingWho Cut the Cheese? and its combustible sequel, Blame It on the Dog. In this incomparable collection you’ll experience firsthand the Jungian implications of farting, the environmental import of “flatulence cards” in the carbon-offset market, and the brutally honest social commentary of a man whose office chair broadcasts his farts on Twitter. After reading this book you’ll proudly proclaim, “I fart, therefore I am.”
